Law: State Data Protection Act ('LDSG') 2018 (only available in German here)
Regulator: Baden-Württemberg data protection authority ('LfDI Baden-Württemberg')
Summary: The LDSG provides for derogations from the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR') and data protection requirements within Baden-Württemberg, including, among other things, limiting the exercise of certain data subject rights, setting out requirements related to special processing purposes, and detailing certain legal bases for processing. Much of the LDSG considers exemptions from the GDPR for activities in the public sector. The LDSG establishes the LfDI Baden-Württemberg. The LfDI Baden-Württemberg is an active authority and regularly releases guidance covering a wide range of topics, such as joint controllership, data breaches, and consent, as well as issuing additional material such as templates and FAQs.
